Old people sometimes gain weight!

Tattoos 20 years later look worse than a little weight gain.

Slash knows so much about elephants.

That's not a jab at his weight. The dude just loves elephants.

That's not Slash. That's just one of our parents who dresses up as Slash.
 
2013-06-20 10:32:11 AM
Slash is by far the most interesting man ever to come out of the 80s rock scene.  There's just this aura about him that I can't think of another hair band/metal artist that has it.
 
2013-06-20 10:34:26 AM
Looks more like Steven Seagal.
 
2013-06-20 10:44:48 AM
He doesn't look very black in that photo

His autobiography is pretty great. It really captures what growing up in LA in the 70s was like.

I agree it was great, but not everyone in 1970s LA had neighbors like Slash.

I thought it WAS Steven Seagal in some Z-movie adaptation of  Cape Fear.

Slash more like slush, amirite?

Yep.  And Axl is an even *bigger* douchebag now.  And that's really saying something.

When he was on That Metal Show it was *killing* Jim Florentine to clam up.  He was bursting at the seams to ask Axl why he was such a nozzle.
 
2013-06-20 11:10:09 AM
Fat, old men look fat and old.
 
2013-06-20 11:13:52 AM
Axl walks with a cane now? Damn.

No farking way I'm putting a TMZ app on my phone.

No. Is that a bellybutton piercing. Wat

He was still pretty awesome when I saw him last year:

I like the guy but his belly skin looks like it's stretched just about to the bursting point. I can't stand that "beach ball belly" look some guys have when they get old. He probably has stretch marks.

this!
i so wish that 7/12 was not a friday, since i have to work...slash with miles kennedy is one of the acts playing at the eagle's bfd in dallas! i've seen them "live" on tv, but i'd love to see them live in person. they do original stuff and gnr stuff.

there's no way i'd see axl's guns 'n' review (a little ccr post-john fogerty nod there), not even if i was getting paid for it!

with that said, fogerty is coming to town in a few months, and the ad says he's playing "bayou country" in it's entirety, plus a lot of other stuff. i need to see that!
 
2013-06-20 11:52:58 AM
Oh so that's what Slash looks like without his sunglasses - Steven Segal.
 
2013-06-20 11:55:08 AM
Hey look everybody! Slash looks different than he did 30 farking years ago.

You look really pale in that picture.  And square.
 
2013-06-20 12:03:25 PM
Does his belly tattoo say ABBA?
 
2013-06-20 12:03:33 PM
Actually I think that's probably mostly a combination of an odd camera angle and shadowing. He has a gut, but it isn't hanging over his shorts, and he doesn't have the man boob thing going on at all. He actually seems to be in pretty good shape for a dude pushing 50.
 
2013-06-20 12:08:02 PM
Slash's book was a good read.

Though, I question the memory of a junkie. Same as Keith Richard's book (great) and Anthony Kiedis (ok).
 
2013-06-20 12:22:52 PM
That's not Slash.  The nose and skin color are all wrong.
 
2013-06-20 12:32:59 PM
Looks more like Curt Kirkwood

Don't be ridiculous, subby.

Everyone knows there's no such thing as Slash.

She'd a tear cause I'm missin' you
I'm still alright to smile but I nearly fell off mah
chair at seeing Axle and Slash old and busted.

But I been thinkin' bout, thinkin' bout sex
Always hungry for somethin' that I haven't had yet.

Well, well, well, you just can't tell
Well, well, well, my Michelle.

It's so easy, easy
When everybody's tryin' to please me baby!
 
2013-06-20 12:58:14 PM
I think he looks great for his age and I'd still f*ck him.
 
2013-06-20 01:05:23 PM
Nothing to see here.. He s fine for his age..

In the Axl pic: What's the point of the full head beanie and sunglasses when everything else you wear screams "Look at MEEEE!"?
Is it a faux humility thing or just top level man-tention whoring? Here's a protip Axl, if you want to blend in, the girl in the trashcan shirt, the silver cane and the "grown man" in decorated jeans thing does not work.
 
2013-06-20 01:09:48 PM
For a guy that put his body through complete hell and is pushing 50 years old, he looks absolutely fantastic.

Actually, he's been known for intentionally avoiding the limelight. He simply doesn't go to hotspots most of the time. Something discussed in past interviews. It's not like that look is that out of place in NYC.

Axl looks like a faces of meth after...
 
2013-06-20 01:43:24 PM
This just in, Slash does not wear leather pants and top hat while swimming.  Coming up later, men at 50 look different than they did at 20.

Probably wears a hat to cover up his balding. It's why the 40's were known as the bald man's paradise.

By far the most interesting and humorous stories about Axl in recent memory involve him being completely normal, wholly polite and downright grounded.

A recent fave involved an acquaintance out on L.A. whom was selling a guitar Axl wanted.  Axl offered to talk business over dinner and for the sake of a good story he agreed to go to some posh restaurant where nothing unusual happened....no tantrums were thrown, nothing was broken, no plates sent back and he tipped the waitress generously and provided autographs for the staff.  Afterwards he paid the asking price for the guitar, shook hands and that was it.

When a story like that happens, and it's notable, you know that you have transcended the rock and roll lifestyle and the reputation that comes with it.

Wow. Old guys look old. Shocking! If I had 1/2 the money either one of them has my nose would have fallen off years ago, and I would be WAAYYYY fatter.


Haters gonna hate.

Too bad. GNR is still a good concert.
